Manny just finished trimming my one and only tree. I highly recommend Manny! I could tell he really cared about his work just watching him going to a lot of trouble to get that tree branch or limb to cut that just didn't look right to him. My tree now looks fantastic. He had all the gear, safety gear etc., to accomplish the job and I am very pleased with the job. I have already talked to him now to do some landscaping for me. Thanks Manny for job well done. Marv

My sprinkler valve cracked the afternoon before I left town for two weeks. Chris showed up promptly, fixed the problem, and even replaced a few sprinkler heads and fixed the wiring on another set of valves. He was courteous, knowledgeable, and competent. I will definitely bring him back to get some landscaping done!

Don't know where to start with how impressed I was with Carlos and Cesar. I am a business consultant and will use them as a gold standard for how customer service is done right. It starts with their arriving on time to review the job and to bid. They were respectful and courteous. I told them that I needed one tall pine to be cut back so that limbs would not hang into the neighbor's yard. They explained that it would be best to have the entire tree trimmed or it may become unbalanced with one side trimmed and the other not. When they they gave me their bid it was reasonable enough that I asked that they trim two tall pines and two palms, none of which had been trimmed in more than 15 years. A day later I received by email a simply written contract, a bonding certificate, and two certificates of liability. Carlos arrived on time with his truck, shredder, and crew. They were well presented and professional, and got to work right away. This was an all day job and soon the yard was about 6 feet high with trimmings. They crew was very fast at removing the waste even though it had to be done by hand and included a long walk from the back yard to their truck in front. Hardly a half hour went by when Carlos didn't visit me to give me an update on what they are doing and how they are doing it. He assured me that our yard, and the yards of neighbors, would all be cleaned up and returned to how they were before the trimming began. By the end of the day my two 60 foot pines and two palms that were even taller were properly trimmed and absolutely beautiful. When my neighbor returned from work I met her to show her that she no longer had concerns about the limbs that hung over into her yard. She smiled with joy and was so impressed with how nicely the work was done. If she had only known that a few short hours earlier her back yard was buried in tree debris! By the end of the day, I had asked Carlos to have Cesar give me a quote on landscaping work and I engaged Raygoza to trim my tall eucalyptus and ficus, both in the front yard. I am not quick to applaud the work of others, especially those who are paid to perform a service. The work that Raygoza does will now be the yardstick by which other service people will be judged.

George and his crew did an excellent job. I had a deadline to have my property cleaned up for a photo shoot for a real estate listing, George made my backyard look picture perfect. He trimmed all the palm trees, fruit trees and various foliage, weeded, and hauled off the trimmings and he did it all for a fair price. He cleaned up the front yard as well so everything look pristine. I am very pleased with Xpert Landscaping's work and will use them again.

David was awesome! My backyard landscaping with patio got off to a really bad start. The guys I had hired did a terrible job and the next guy I hired to finish it never showed up. I was trying to get it done before my daughter's birthday party and was quite distraught about the situation. David gave me a good quote and stayed ahead of schedule. His guys worked hard and were never standing around wasting time. He got the job done and would recommend him (and hire him) in the future.

I had a very large tree in front of my first home I bought and I wanted it gone for our new landscaping plans. A few guys came by and checked it out and gave me a very expensive quote! Daniel removed our tree for a very reasonable price given the size and complexity of the roots. Everyone told me it would take 2weeks and Daniel did it in 1week! He was always respectful and Had great work ethic! I would highly recommend him!

Form and Focus completed a full landscaping job for us this past spring. Our backyard began with all dirt, and by the end, we had attractive hardscape, redwood fences, artificial turf, a raised cement deck with seat wall, landscape lighting, a gas firepit, drip sprinklers, and complementary planter beds to accent the perimeters. From the design phase through completion, Jacob and his team were very professional, and especially responsive to our design change requests throughout. We would highly recommend Form and Focus for any of your landscaping projects.

Our tenants and neighbors are amazed at the transformation. The work was done in a timely manner. And, you successfully worked with our budget!

Being a homeowner for the last 9 years, I've dealt with many contractors for a variety of different work done on my home both inside and outside. Elite Artificial Grass are top notch in the industry and delivered as promised. There were some quotes I received that were both lower and higher in cost, and Elite were very competitive. However, with the clean and professional work I received, I definitely felt I received 5 Star quality work. Since my front and backyard has been done, I've referred quite a few family and friends. All are very satisfied customers. Thank you Elite for beautifying my yard.

So happy with this Jade Landscape Business. They came and gave me a free estimate. Hugo was very specific in what he was talking about. I hired them after a couple of days. They came and installed a new drain, sod, mulch, sprinklers, new timer and a retaining wall. Loved their job.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

What does a landscape contractor do?

Landscape contractors work from outdoor architectural or design plans to build and install hardscaping or softscaping for the client, much as a general contractor uses architectural designs to build a house. Landscape contractors are experts in soil drainage, grading, hardscaping (installing concrete paths and retaining wall, building ponds, etc.), and planting. They have heavy equipment such as excavators and tractors to prepare the land as needed.

Some landscape contractors are also landscape architects or landscape designers. The titles can be compared with those in home construction: A building or landscape architect must earn a specialized architecture degree and pass an exam to have a license. A designer — whether an interior designer or a landscape designer — does not usually require a license to work. Landscape contractors are not required by law to work from plans designed by a landscape architect, so you may work directly with the landscape contractor to specify the work you’d like done. The national average cost for large-scale landscaping projects is $10,160. Pricing can vary greatly depending on the project scope, materials and design.

How do you look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.

How do you find a good landscape architect?

Hiring a landscape architect is an investment in your home. Landscaping can reduce water bills, improve your home resale value, add to your daily living experience and significantly boost curb appeal. A landscape architect will draw the designs for your new landscape; you’ll want to hire a landscape contractor to carry out the plans. Many companies provide design-build landscaping services, with a company architect creating plans for your vision and the landscape contractor executing the vision. With the proper academic background and licensing, a person can be both landscape architect and landscape contractor. Here are a few tips for finding a great landscape architect:

  • Research online portfolios and find several landscape architects whose work interests you.
  • Read online reviews of client experiences.
  • Research whether the landscape architects you are interested in are currently licensed and in good standing with the licensing board, and check whether any complaints have been issued against them. Each state will have their own searchable database. For example, you can search for California landscape architects via the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs.
  • Request bids from your selected landscape architects.
  • Hire the one you like the most, taking care to have a clearly written contract outlining scope of work.

How much does it cost to have landscaping done?

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.
